November 7, 2011—At the 33rd Annual Dangerous Goods Advisory Council (DGAC) Conference and Hazardous Materials Transportation Exposition in Tampa, FL, Howard Skolnik and Rhonda Jessop presented a workshop on “Writing Closure Instructions.” Attendees were challenged to first write simple instructions (such as how to fold a fitted sheet), and were then asked to create and demonstrate closure instructions for 3 styles of steel drums. Those in attendance had fun and learned a great deal about the importance of precise instructions and how easily they can be misunderstood.
